Very happy with this purchase and the quality of this boot. Good for shorter hikes and working. Very reliable. I’ve had them for a few months and I wish I could return them for another pair, because the toe box tilts slightly upwards, and after moving/standing/hiking for a while in them, my pads of my toes start to feel not great because of the excess pressure and rubbing on them. If the toe box wasn’t tilted slightly up, they’d be a perfect boot, but I wish I went with another style so they could be used more comfortably for l anger amounts of times, and I worry if I take them on a long hike, my toes will blister.
I wore basque forever until the soles started coming off. Switched to these abuse this the the only American boot left made here. Their others aren’t either. I work construction amd wear them everyday rain or shine. Lasted so long I bought another pair before their discontinued.
Comfortable, durable and ready to put miles on straight out of the box.
Best hiking boots I've worn. Very versatile. Perfect for off trail adventures, working and casual wear. Backed by a one year warranty I don't need to use but have the peace of mind knowing is available to. I doubt I'll ever find anything I like better. I wish I had another pair that wasn't water proof and a bit lighter and more breathable for certain situations. They feel very light and breathable for what they are though. I also especially like that they're American made in the Pacific Northwest.
Not even close to the comfort or quality of the original Durand. The boot is made with inferior materials and assembled rather sloppy. They do actually have the metatomical insole which is the only upside to this boot. The shoe strings are way too short also.
I got Durands less than a year ago, as I wanted a made in USA boot that would last. I'm on the trail 5-6 days a week with my dog. Last month, I had to replace a speed hook on the right boot, and today I noticed that the stitching at the base of the laces on both boots has given out and will need to be repaired.
I expected better from Keen and from made in USA, especially at $195 a pair.
Great for hiking. Run's wide and warm for an uninsulated boot.
I've used many boots and always come back to Keen. Other Keen boots had not been durable of me, but the Durand appears to be a workhorse so far. Had it for 9 months and must have put close to 1000 km (about 600 miles) by now and it still looks good.
Even the standard version of the Durand appears to run wide, I have a E width, so it great. I am a Canadian, but it feels good to wear boots made in US.
Thanks keen for making such amazing, comfortable footwear. My feet thank you. Love the fact that this Durand II is made here in the USA. Durand is so dang comfortable and the sole so cushy. Keen gets the comfort right, and the soles are so shock absorbing. The leather is so soft and doesn’t wrinkle. Only thing I could think of to improve would be better tread on the outsole, as there are some pretty big gaps down there. Would love to see a couple different colors to choose from in varying heights in the future. Now I have 5 pairs of keens that are made in America. Keep them coming. Def my new fav.
For the last 6 years I have been wearing Keen boots exclusively. My last pair of Durand have lasted 2 full years. Im 285 lbs and work on concrete all day. Ive worn several other brands and none last like Keen boots.
Thanks keen for making this boot. I hope you continue to make these USA made Durand’s in the future, bcuz right now theyre all sold out. I want to buy another pair. The way the 4th strap from the top works is how EVERY keen should work. It secures my ankle better than the Durand boot I bought with the keen kconnect. It also works better than my Braddocks which are sewn directly to the leather. These USA durands are so amazingly comfortable. The leather is the very best supple smooth leather I’ve ever had out of any keens I’ve owned during the last 14-15 years (prob 14 different pairs of Boots and Newport’s). Love the bounce that keen soles have in the heels as it helps fight foot fatigue. If I could find anything wrong with this pair, it would have to be the grey stripe across the black soles. The grey color stripe is coming off in the front and I’ve only worn them 3x very lightly. The soles would look better if they were all one color... black. Would like to see a couple color options on the Durand 3 USA. Maybe 1 all black smooth leather, and 1 very nice brown (copper rough and tough like) color with all black soles on both. Based on how well made and long lasting all my other pairs of keens have been (especially the made in USA ones), I know these will be useful for a long time. I have a customer for life as long as your footwear continues to be awesome. Thanks.
These Durand shoes are the most comfortable (wear them every day for work) and seem so far to be the best well made (in America) Keen I have ever owned. The previous pair Targhee were the worst (made in Asia) shoes I owned, coming apart in 3 months. Worth paying extra money to have quality made in America products.
These boots check all of the boxes for me, they are light enough to hike through the Andes all day, yet durable and robust in construction to take the heavy abuse when hunting in the mountains. The toe box gives sufficient room for comfort, but the rest of the boot is tight enough to provide stability. It could use a synthetic shank in the footbed to provide additional torsional stability, but that's the only change is suggest. KEEN - Please consider moving more of your boots to "USA MADE", it's important.
I have spent the last year looking for a Keen replacement for another set of Keen hikers that I literally worn holes in the soles of the boot. I decided to try out the Durand II Mids. I have had them for several weeks and what I like is that they fit perfectly right out of the box. I will still take the time to break them in properly but they have performed well so far. I have never found that perfect hiking boot in the past due to my wide foot and the need for the extra toe box that Keens provide. I might have just found them. The best part is they are manufactured in the USA. I am a firm believer in buying USA products when available. I also have Keen shoes that I use on an everyday basis. I am a Keen purchaser for life. Thanks
I usually only leave reviews if an item is either an extremely good, or extremely bad value. Happy to say that these boots are extremely good! Have had these close to a year, and I could clean them up, put them back in the box, and you'd think they're new. I'm not easy on my gear, but these are ridiculously durable, just broken in. Reminds me of the past, when a pair of hiking boots lasted for YEARS. Six months in, they needed a healthy shot of silicone waterproofing, which is better than most leather boots. Only one minor complaint - the tongue could be a little longer, as knotting them at the top usually lets the knot slip out and ride against my socks. Solved that by lacing differently, so the knot is made lower down. Very comfortable and just the right amount of warmth. Made in USA, so cost more, but top of the shelf materials, and workmanship. Keep after the waterproofing, and they'll stay like new. Nice work, you guys!
The MEN'S DURAND II MID WP is the only boot I will buy now. I do not buy wide shoes because my heel and midsole are normal width; however, my forefoot needs additional space. These boots are perfectly designed for me and my feet are not squeezed.
My first pair of Keen boots arrived early in the month of December. I have hiked approximately 90 miles of Pacific Northwest rainforest, rough trail, and old logging roads. Perfect fit right out of the box! They performed extremely well in every condition with DRY FEET every hike. I would buy these boots again. Any serious hiker would be impressed with these boots. They are comfortable, durable, and waterproof. This KEEN fan has Happy Feet!
I bought these boots as I have become increasingly disappointed with TImberland Pro's. Wanted to find a product that was as comfortable, if not better and is AMERICAN MADE! Tired of seeing big names with crappy workmanship made in China. Needless to say, these have not disappointed and are far more comfortable than my last paid of Timberland Pro's. I hope you will consider bringing all of your Keen lines back to the U.S. and can truly be labeled, Made in the USA!
Ordered these to replace some well worn Durand Mid. I am not as impressed in the 2nd generation as the originals. The construction is different and missing the loop in the back to pull them on with. Lacing is also set up differently.
Style, construction, fit, comfort out of the box, all excellent. The design could use a rigid nylon shank, and a slightly lower heel cup; my foot wants to slide forward in the boot regardless of how tight the laces are adjusted. Lastly, make a summer version unlined/no waterproof material - the boots are too hot to wear in the summer.
I've been wearing Merrell boots for years, but decided to give Keen a try and I am glad I did. The Durand boot is like putting your foot into a cradle. Hiking the Blue Ridge and Appalachian mountain trails are rocky and at times unstable, these boots offer amazing stability, protection, and comfort on long haul hikes.
These are my second pair. The boots fit very well sized 10. They were comfortable from the start. I am a pretty flat footed individual and these boots are what I decided on after shopping around and trying things on for over a year. They give great support. If I had to give an criticism would be they don’t breathe as well as I would want but then again they are waterproof boots.
I have been enjoying these boots for hiking. They fit and performed well on the trail...However, after only taking my first hike in them on June 13th, 2020, a seam along the toe of the right boot split open, leaving me with a large 1/2" to 3/4" hole along the top left side of the boot... Super disappointing as I rely on the weathertight nature of these boots for hiking in wet conditions.
Guess I'll have to find a more reliable boot to buy so I can get another hike or two in this fall.
I’ve wore boots my entire life and have tried just about every brand on the market. These are by far the best constructed and most comfortable boot for the price. I love them and would definitely recommend. Also made in the USA is very important to me. That was what sealed the deal. 🇺🇸
My first pair are still going strong, and im hard on boots. I've worn them every day this summer and beat the heck out of these. They're scuffed up for sure but still holding up great and still waterproof! I ordered a second pair just to keep on hand.
I have been using Mt Vernon and Pittsburgh for work boots. Tried Durand and like a lot for hiking boot. Not as heavy duty as other two. So use for every day casual also. Very comfortable and supportive. Like so much that I ordered a 2nd pair and my wife ordered a smaller size 9 men's as she normally is a 10.5 in women's. Fit her great.
bought these boots based on reviews . toe box is small and pressing down on toes , very narrow, very uncomfortable to the feet .sizing is way off better to order at least 1 size bigger than you need . and even then i expect them to still be as bad and uncomfortable. the boot is hot and makes feet sweat very hot boot to wear unless you like to remove them every hour to let your foot cool down . light yes but not for any extended hiking at all . i would stay away from these boots as you will be very unsatisfied with them . will never buy from this company again
I use the heck out of these boots. Many miles a day to-and-from work, which is building mountain bike trails. I move a lot of dirt with the sides and toes, and these are stable and sturdy. They do run small. I’m usually 10-1/2 to 11, and size 11 was tight enough that I could only wear thin cycling socks. When I finally wore through the side seams and softened up the soles, I replaced them with the new Durand II in size 11.5. Muuuuuch better. The waterproof materials never let me down. Hmmm... what else? Not fond of the too-long laces that pick up burrs like crazy, so I replaced them with “harder” laces. No biggie.
Made in USA. (Assembled in USA, at least.) I bought these because they are made in USA and prior experience with other KEEN shoes. I like them. The are very comfortable, but they run a half size small. Plan accordingly when ordering.
I needed a boot a little bit tougher than the Targhee because of the extremely rough terrain I hike in. The Durand fills that need while still being extremely comfortable. One four mile hike and they were "broken in" and felt great and also provided the support I needed on the loose rocks and rough trail.
I’ve been using Keens for 15 years and have been very satisfied. As expected, these Durand II’s have not disappointed. I usually use the Targhees but decided to give these a try because they are assembled in the USA. I am glad I did. As with the targhees, they are not too narrow in the toe box which is very important to me even though I do not have wide feet. I have just used them casually so far but they do not seem to need much break in. I will be using them on an upcoming 8-day backpacking trip and will se how the perform and hold up. So far so good!
Ordered the first pair and the bottom eyelets on the left boot were not uniformly centered with the opposite side. Tried them on for the first time and the top speed lace pulled out of the boot upon tightening. Boots were very comfortable and true to size, although I couldn't lace properly due to the broken hardware. Sent defective boots back for a refund and ordered a second pair to give it another try.
I love Keen shoes and boots and I have worn Keen products for many, many years. Always extremely comfortable and minimal break-in time.
One thing I can say about Keen, they seem to have a "product quality control" issue. It is hit and miss, but typically there are blemishes such as crooked or bent eyelets and/or severely offset eyelets from the opposite side, nylon eyelets actually pulling out of the leather, toe guards not being uniform in size from right to left shoe/boot, and crooked stitching/leather deformity.
Here again, I love the Keen shoes and boots for comfort and fit, but I can't even count the number of times I have returned and or exchanged Keen shoes and boots due to the previously mentioned quality control issues.
The first pair of these Durand boots were sent back and a refund issued without a problem. Ordered the second pair which are extremely comfortable, but the eyelets again towards the toe box were crooked and off-set from the opposite side on the left boot, but not significant enough to warrant a second return.
Here again, I believe Keens "quality control" needs to step it up !!!
I ordered these hiking boots directly from the Keen website and saved big-time over buying the same boots at the local sporting goods store. So glad I found them on sale at just the right time! Their comfortable and work great trekking around the hills and mountains of Northern Utah.
